Our Lincoln Letter
Lincoln. Nebr., June 13.
(Special Correspondence.) In the
years gone by there has been more "or
less complaint because the pardoning
power has been abused. This com
plaint can not lie against Governor
Shallenberger. He insists upon law
enforcement in the first place, and after
an offender has been sentenced he in
sists upon the sentence being carried
out unless ample evidence is adduced
to show that the sentence is too severe
or the circumstances surrounding the
violation of law mitigating to a great
degree. Following this plan the gov
ernor has made a record that ought to
entitle him to great credit along this
particular line. The "sob squad" has
little or no influence with him. He in
sists upon having the facts submitted,
plainly and bluntly, and pathos on the
part of petitioners is not allowed to
have any bearing on the results.
During the seventeen months of his
incumbency Governor Shallenberger
has exercised clemency in only ten
cases. Two of these were "Fourth of
July pardons," and made practically
obligatory by statute.
This record is doubly interesting
when compared with the record of
Governor Shallenberger's two imme
diate predecessors. When compared
with the record of Governoi Patterson
of Tennessee it becomes actually
astonishing. In three years Governor
Patterson has exercised the pardoning
power 956 times, his record of 38 in
, one day being unsurpassed. Thus the
work of 152 judges, 228 lawyers and i,
824 jurors have been practically null
fied by Tennessee's governor.
An interesting incident took place in
Lincoln recently, the occasion being a
meeting of teachers and county super
intendents addressed by Senator Burk
ett and Richard L. Metcalf. The
senator tried to make it appear that he
did not know the occasion of the meet
ing, then went on to take a dig at the
"insurgent" movement. He declared
(with emphasis that congress was re
sponsive to the will of the people, and
further declared that congress always
moved just as rapidly as the people
wanted it to move. In many respects
his address was 'a repetition of his
Memorial address in Lincoln this year.
When Mr. Metcalf arose he took sharp
issue with the senator on the proposi
tion that congress is responsive to the
to the will of the people. "Four times
has the house of representatives de
clared in favor of direct election of
senators, and four times the honorable
body of which Mr. Burkett is a member
has treated the people with contempt
By platform, on the stump, in the
press and upon the streets the people
of this great republic less than two
years ago demonstrated beyond a pre
adventure that they wanted the tariff
revised downward. The answer of
this so-called responsive congress of
ours was a revision upward. If this is
responding to the will of the people,"
concluded Mr. Metcalfe, "then I have
for years labored under a mistaken
idea of the meaning of that term."
While Senator Burkett's declaration
was received in silence, Mr. Metcalfe's
retort was greeted with loud applause
from the assembled educators.
To Advertise Nebraska
We are pleased to note that a move
ment is on foot to systematically ad
vertise Nebraska in other states. The
Nebraska State Association of Com
mercial Clubs and the Nebraska Press
association have both passed resolut
ions endorsing a proposition to request
the next legislature to make a liberal
appropriation to the bureau of labor
and statistics to pay the expense of
The proposition appeals to us as
being a good one, and we think is being
put forward at an opportuue time.
Never before have the state and its
latent resources been as well under
stood as now: and never before have so
many people understood how to sucess
fully develop these resources. Much
of the failure of the early years of the
state's settlement, particularly in tl)e
western part, was due to a lack of
knowledge. It has been demonstrated
beyond a doubt that western Nebraska
is capable of supporting as heavy a
population as is now found in the east
ern part of the state and Iowa; and
there can be no question about the
advisability of letting the people in
other sections know these facts.
There will be several distiuct ad
vantages in having this advertising
done under state authority. In addi
tion to the prestige of having the sanc
tion of the legislature and executive
branches of the state government, this
kind of advertising would be distinct
ly valuable on account of being author
itative and reliable. A great deal of
good advertising has been done by
real estate men advertising that was
accurate and .reliable; but barm has
been done by some advertising that
was not accurate and consequently not
reliable. Misleading advertisements
are worse than no advertising. Men
who are mislead by claims that cannot
be substantiated, lose faith in all claims
that may be made, and are not usually
slow in letting othere know of their
lack of confidence.
We hope the uext Nebraska legisla
ture will take action in this matter, and
make provision to carry out the project
to a successful termination.
Difference in Towns
There is quite a big diftereuce be
tween towns that are supposed to size
up in the same class. The last census
showed Columbus to be somewhat
larger thim Alliance, and this year's
census will probably show tha two
towns to have about the same popula
tion. Alliance will celebrate the
glorious fourth of July nnd follow that
with the three days of the annual con
vention of stochmen. The finance
committee lust Saturday night reported
$3,015,00 raised up to tliut time to pay
expen&es. The Columbus Telegram of
la-st Friday announced that there
would be no 4th of July celebration in
that town this year on account of a
lack of the necessary funds. After
malting quite a thorough canvass of
the business houses the committee
appointed to solicit funds secured
pledges for less than two hundred
dollars, and accordingly voted un
animously to abandon all efforts at
celebrating the day this year. The
day will not be altogether without en
tertainment, however, as there is to be
a game of ball between the Columbus
and Kearney teams.

That is the question that is asked so
many times by doubting ones who
would like to carry insurance but they
allow their doubts and suspicions to
cheat them out of one of the greatest
blessings bestowed upon man or wo
man. The following testimonials will set
at rest all doubts in the mind of any
